The Amy dance
She did this occasionally, that she scared the wits out of me in the middle of the night the very first time. Her eyes are closed or semi-open, her lips are O shaped and her shoulders are flat, and her hands are stiff. The legs are folded and in air and move to one side with a kick, simultaneously, the shoulders move the opposite sides. So her shoulder, hands and leg move the opposite direction. She did this for a couple of times, and was pretty scary first.. But now I enjoy.. I haven't seen her dance for the past two days!
The Amy kick
Amy's legs looked pretty long when they were born. They were so thin, that we joked, it resembled the chicken leg piece. Now her legs have grown and they look normal and cute. When she is laid down, she never puts her leg down. They will be in air kicking. The first week, she tried to keep one leg over the other and tried to turn over..! If you lie next to her, her lil legs will keep kicking u. The 'quick dry sheet' will be kicked and kicked that it will be one side of the bed! Amy can never be covered with blanket. Any thing that touches her leg ought to be kicked. So we cover up her tummy alone with blanket, and let her sleep. Once she is sound asleep, the legs can be covered, but mind you, if she feels the blanket, she would kick it, until the blanket comes off her legs and no where near the vicinity and her sleep goes for a toss! :)
The Amy talk.
My niece Adah, who just turned one on Jan 27th, is a big time talker. To equal Adam's energy and sound, she is quite loud and energetic herself. She loved to enter our room, and explore the table, bed, and everything inside( including the dirty napkin bag). Amy at times, sleeps through the noise, but the screaming and yelling sound, does jolt her up. So what did Amy learn? 'Hey'. It is more like 'yay'. So Amy says, 'Hey', everytime she wants milk. I am sure, she would have learnt more words, had Adah been around now.
The Amy hairstyle
Amy has two swirls on her head. They say, she could be handsful :) So the 2 swirls, make her hair stand straight, giving her a natural spike on her head. She looks so cute. Trust me, we are not able to remove her spikes, unless we put enough hair oil to keep it down! She also has lots of hair in the back of the head. So her little neck is covered with this hair, and had to be dried everytime, we wash her head down! Funk style! Spikey funk style!
The Amy smile.
Amy has a beautiful smile. Earlier, she used to smile only in her sleep, and then she started smiling, after her tummy was full. Slowly she started to smile at faces. She looks at you enquiringly, and there goes the flashy toothless grin. Oh, how I love my baby!
